Hi everybody,

I think most of you know everything that my family has been through in the last four-plus years. We've had a hard time. We all miss Tyler very much. But I'm hoping I interest some of you in doing something good for the Chordoma Foundation, which was a cause he worked very hard for, and also a tribute to him. So I'm asking people to consider making donations to the Chordoma Foundation.

I also didn't want to just ask for money. So this is what I came up with: if you make a $10 donation here, at my family's Chordoma Champions page - http://chord.convio.net/site/TR?px=1003587&fr_id=1030&pg=personal - I'll send you a list of mix CDs Tyler made. I've moved all of these over to my iTunes and I listen to them often. If you're into the ABB and related bands you've heard some of this music - Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, the Allmans, the Dead, the Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Dr. John, Derek Trucks - but the fun of it is hearing the combinations and contexts it's placed in.

I listen to these often and it helps me feel connected to Tyler. And it's excellent music, obviously. So I want to offer these as a gift - I can't sell them - as a twist on an old fashioned B&P. Make a $10 donation, I'll send you the list, and you can pick from any of the 11 CDs I have. $20 will get you a choice of any two, and on it goes.

I know a lot of you met Tyler personally at the Beacon in the last few years and the support this community showed for him was outstanding. This isn't exactly giving back something for nothing, but I think it's something meaningful to share. Thank y'all so much.

Thanks, Helen. I see I screwed up the link originally (although there's also a link in my sig), so I fixed that.

Hi Marley. Neither link works. The one in your sig just goes to a login page.

peace!

oops, correction, the link in the first post of your sig works.

Fixed again. It's not just a login page, though. If you scroll down and look below the picture of Tyler, you'll see a link to donate. I'll suggest they make that more prominent.

Love that picture of Tyler and the mischief in his grin. Some nights I see it when the stars are laughing...

You're the best, Jeanne.

I've burned the first batch of CDs and they should be in the mail tomorrow. Banesh, thank you for your donation - I'm still waiting to hear which CDs you want (and I need your mailing address).

I think this has gone very well so far, but I'm bumping this one time. I think we can do more and I'm sure a ton of people on this site would enjoy this music!

I'll bump this up, too, Marley! Wonderful way to remember your brother and I'm guessing Tyler is smiling down on this.

Thank you very much, lolasdeb. Some orders are still coming in and I'm reaching out through as many channels as I can. I also just posted a new fundraising idea over here: http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&am p;file=viewthread&tid=116832

Thanks for the bump, sonnystang, and thanks for BadLittleDoggie and EasyMichael for the donations. By the way, sonny, they revamped the donations pages a couple of months ago. The link in your profile no longer goes anywhere. My family now just has one combined page, and my signature contains the personalized URL.

Marley....I'd double check the link you have in your sig. I got a "page not found" at the Chordoma Foundation site when I clicked on it.

Keep the fight going.

I deleted the rest of my signature so hopefully that stray code will go away. And thank you, sonnystang, for your donation.

I had the good fortune of meeting Tyler once, at a Beacon gathering. Prayers to you and your family Marley.

Thanks for the bump, sonny. We've raised about $1,100 for the Chordoma Foundation from this thing. I'm very proud of that, and I'd like to keep this going for a long time. The t-shirt idea is still under consideration. It's much more expensive to do the shirts than the blank CDs, unfortunately, so we need to figure out a way to make that work. Meanwhile please enjoy the music and keep sharing this offer. I'm glad we crossed the $1K mark but I don't want it to stop there.
